The economic and social impacts of COVID19 are starkly gendered- a fact that is evident as we all manage the immediate health threats and economic and social crises caused by the pandemic, and as we plan for a post-COVID future. AWDF is seeking to support African women’s organisations working to respond to COVID19 beyond immediate emergency service delivery operations- in particular those seeking to use this opportunity to support deeper change in our economic, social and political systems.

AWDF encourages applications for work that is led by and supports the leadership and concerns of women facing multiple discrimination (women with diverse abilities; women living with HIV and AIDS, young women, LBTQ communities, women sex workers, women in the rural areas and marginalized women in urban areas.
